Contrary to what some unenlightened souls might think, The Bionic Six wasn't inspired by the 70's adventures of The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman, even though MCA, then the parent company of Universal, handled distribution for this weekday cartoon, which lasted one season in 1987.
Instead, the Six are a group of ordinary folks given bionic powers to combat the predictable mad scientist, in this case, Scarab, whose brother is the Six's benefactor. There is a connection, however, to the bionic franchise. Alan Oppenheimer, better known for his voice work than his years as a character actor, was the original actor cast as Dr. Rudy Wells before being replaced by Martin E. Brooks. Jennifer Darling, who voiced one of the villains, played the secretary of Oscar Goldman.
Bionicsix1987 (Duh!) uploaded the series opener, "Valley of Shadows":
Could you picture the Fantastic Four rebooted with bionic powers? The Japanese creator of this series certainly had to have that in mind, I think, but US audiences weren't digging.
